Inspired by the many who have traveled the rugged road and climbed the high mountains of the Land of the Indus, Aryavarta, Bharatvarsha, Hindustan, our India… We are on this quest to bring home to as many Indians as possible, the idea of our identity as Indians, the idea of our diversity as people, the idea of our history as a civilization, the idea of our politics as a federal republic, the idea of our economy as a market, the idea of our culture as the way of life, the idea of our churning present, the idea of our possible future, the idea of our sovereignty, our socialism, our secularism, our democracy, our republic, our liberty, our equality, our justice, our fraternity…
The Idea of who we were, who we are and who we can be as ONE NATION.. The Idea of India
